Today’s a new day! Since the enemy cannot keep God from blessing you, he will try to keep you from living out the blessing that God has freely given you. ~OC
Today’s a new day! Stop comparing yourself to something that was never meant to be your standard. ~OC
The Holy Spirit in us should not only encourage us, but It should compel us to be more committed to Jesus and our communities.
Christians who are willing to sacrifice all for Jesus realize community/fellowship is a necessity for all and not a luxury for a few.
We cannot have truly connected communities if we are unwilling to forsake everything for Jesus. Are we ready to make that commitment?
Are we truly willing to reach out to others in time of need? Even when it’s not comfortable. When it forces us out of our neatly constructed lives.
Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to draw us into a place of total surrender to our Savior. A place of surrender, that produces a greater love for Him and a greater need to truly embrace community. To truly serve others. To truly be the Church. ~OC
As I was waking this morning, God gave me this prayer. I pray it over each of you today and the days to come. ~OC
Today’s a new day! Dear Jesus, make our hearts your home. Your resting place. Let us make room for you. Never leave us Dear Lord. Stay with us always.
Today’s a new day! Are you looking for significance in your career? Being rich? Being the smartest person in the room? Being famous? Being popular? If your significance is defined in comparing yourself with others, you’ll always be chasing after it. Only to come up empty.
But when Jesus declares you significant, your days of chasing it are over. You’re Significant. Accept it. Embrace it. Live in it. ~OC
Today’s a new day!
God’s Plan-Not Mine
God’s Will-Not Mine
God’s Glory-Not Mine
God’s Word-Not Mine
God’s Timing–Not Mine
Today’s a new day! The presence of an enemy does not mean the absence of God. ~OC
Today’s a new day! I am still Godfidence as I walk through this season of health battles. I pray you will walk with Godfidence in every season. ~OC
Today’s a new day! Remember hearing the word Grace after becoming a follower of Jesus? Oh how it stirred my emotions. Do you remember how sweet it was to sing about God’s Amazing Grace? Does God’s Grace still move you to truly love your neighbors? Does God’s Amazing Grace still move you to thankfulness? Does God’s Amazing Grace still lead you to tears? Are your emotions still moved when you sing that beautiful song Amazing Grace and reflect on God’s beautiful promises? ~OC
As I walked through my crazy beautiful health journey, I was blessed to learn many amazing lessons. Here are just a few of those lessons:
*Try Something New: Go skydiving, snorkeling, do a road trip with friends, or feed the hungry. It doesn’t matter what you do, just take a step outside of your comfort zone.
*Time With Family and Friends: I know during this pandemic that can be difficult. Maybe you cannot meet in person, but you can utilize Zoom or FaceTime. During that time put away all distractions. You might find out how amazing your family and friends really are.
*Capture Memories: I know everyone wants to document their adventures with pictures and videos, but don’t forget to truly experience the moment.
*Say No: Stop adding things to your plate. If you continuously say yes, you are going to miss out on life. Plus burn yourself out.
*Take Time For Yourself: It might only be for a few minutes, but do it. Spend time in prayer. Go for a walk. Read a book. Do something just for you.
*Encourage Someone: Everyone needs some uplifting words. It takes just a minute, but can change a life.
*Call or Text: Take time to call or text a loved one. This simple act could make their day.
*Say I Love You: Don’t miss the chance to tell your loved ones how you feel about them. Life is too short. ~OC
